President-Elect Donald Trump made a bold statement this weekend: The moment he's president, 2 to 3 million criminal illegal immigrants will be deported.
According to The Blaze, Trump explained, "What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million, we are getting them out of our country or we’re going to incarcerate. But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally."
In response, Mexico is preparing for a flood of people back over the border. The Mexican president said he'll definitely be talking to Trump about this.
Spokesman Eduardo Sánchez explained, “We will have to see how many of those deportations, usually done by the United States government to the countries where the illegal immigrants are from, are for Mexico. Of course this and other matters will be part of the agenda that Mexico brings to the table during the bilateral meetings that will take place with the government-elect of President[-elect] Donald Trump.”
Carlos Sada, Mexico's ambassador to the U.S., argued that, “It doesn’t mean that these 2 or 3 million Mexicans will be processed for deportation. The majority are not Mexican and those who are, well, we have protection mechanisms in place.”
